Tom W Clark I read in your reply to Will that around the inboard fuel tank there is a tunnel leading to the bilge pump area. I'm trying to clear a drain forward and it looks like this one goes by the fuel tank. In the bilge pump area there is a large tunnel heading forward. Do you have any idea where this leads and from what it empties into the bilge pump area?? The boat is a 1978 Revenge outboard model. Thanks for any info you can provide.

My comments were in reference to the 18 Outrage. I have not owned the 21 or 19 hulls from the 70's so I don't really know if they are the same. But certainly there are other members here who will chime in...

Trying to remember, been 13 years. Front well had a drain to the outside. There were 2 holes under each console. I think these ran to that stupid little well on starboard side under seat. The rear well had it's own drains and transom area. Inside that stupid well you will see a pipe. I assume it goes forward. I call it a stupid well because it was about the size of a 6pack and if you plugged it you lost your self bailing ability. I ONLY kept a plug in forward well, the rest were unplugged for 14 years.
